to join her. and how they use the network is the use of the connect feature to send messages. her daughter can send messages to everybody in the network letting them know how she is doing. they used to the calendar to schedule appointments and organize rides. they use the shared tasks and goals to organize larger events. for example, when joe was released from the hospital, she was unable to get back into her home because she could not get up the stairs anymore. they used the network to build her a ramp on saturday afternoon. they use files to share information about her and a place where she keeps her personal information. she has advanced directives, medical records, and so on that is not accessible to everybody in the network, but some of the members. there are stories and photos, a place where people can celebrate today, how to share memories, have the good times that were the essence in the past and in the present. you might be asking yourself this question, if you are a facebook user, how is different from facebook. it is what we called open social networking, and it is designed to c
you enjoy the great opening act? thank you so much for joining us tonight for san francisco's asian pacific heritage celebration. yes. and that is giving u.s. side of things to come, but i want to tell you what about the opening performance that you saw. it was proudly presented by the american center for the philippine arts, and it means a "from the village of." it is alive journey of the man struggling with the responsibility. the untapped and dynamism of the folk dance. it was created by the choreographer and performed by san francisco dance artists jonathan mercado, henry lau, maritoni madrano and kimberly requesto. give them an opening applause for that act. [applause] as for this group here, we request that you stand for the singing of the national anthem. >> ♪ oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light what so proudly we hail at the twilight's last gleaming ♪ ♪ who's broad stripes and bright stars through theh perilous fight o'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? ♪ ♪ and the rockets' red glare the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the ni
with us today. happy valentine's day. we will see you at the ballpark. >> good morning, everybody. welcome to the technology summit. we are looking forward to a fantastic day. we are going to start with a demonstration of the wii system. it is an interactive gaming system that allows people to play different activities and participate in different fitness activities together. a lot of wii systems, about 40, are being deployed around the city to different senior centers and residents facilities to encourage older adults to get more involved with physical activity using technology. we're going to spend the first 30 minutes or so demonstrating the wii. not only will we demonstrate how to use it, but we will doe demonstrate adaptive devices so that it can be an inclusive activity for all adults and children. my name is dr. chris thompson from the university of san francisco. go, dons. 1855. i have not been there that long. i am in the department of exercise and sports science. i think it is a good match for me to be demonstrating the wii, which is a good physical activity. i am joined on the s
are part of a very successful industry that has cost us some 71,000. we have an increase in visitors from 2010. you are also helping us to change of their unemployment. we invest here to make improvements. this simple announcement is that we're going to expand this center. i can announce that we are beginning something which is really really important to buttress that expansion, that is to begin a 25-year master plan for our whole center and all the things we wanted to in conjunction with their. that is how we support our tourism industry and our hospitality industry. with that, we have the beginnings of our master plan. you know the work that i did, part of our success is doing long-term planning. we have done that with our 10- year capital infrastructure plan so that once we have completed that plan and we have allowed all of our departments to weigh in, we are doing the same thing with our 25-year master plan. we have skidmore, merrill, and -- helping us do this. by the end of this summer, they will present that master plan to us for consideration. when you plan for success, you will b
recognizing that most of us are, if you will pardon my saying this, a little on the older side. how can i get you all to understand what it is like to use a computer for our parents and for seniors who have never done it? i have a great way. go home and find a 14-year-old boy and ask him to play a video game. i have done this with both of my sons when they were younger, and it is an amazing experience. my kids will be playing a game, which i am total in not understanding at all, and my kids say, "jump," and i go, " how?" everything that is intuitive to them is completely foreign to me. the good news is i am at no risk of becoming addicted to video games. the last point i would like to make is that the environment is really changing rapidly. 10 years ago, if we had sat down and talk about seniors and technology, a lot of people would have wondered why seniors would want to use computers, but that has shifted. over the next few years, as all of us move toward being seniors, we will not be wanting technology. we will be demanding it. the field is going to change, and more and more people are goi
feet in height automatically requires conditional use authorization. so it's sort of a layered effect where you have both an ultimate envelope of 65 feet, but again any development between 40 feet and 65 requires your conditional use authorization. commissioner miguel: thank you, i just wanted that clarified so that everybody understood where the two numbers came from. i might, and i say that very definitely, might be more satisfied if you slipped in the fourth floor, and i say this not to knock off the sixth floor because some of the setbacks on the upper two floors could still work with the whole thing coming down. so slipping out something like the third or fourth floor and bringing it down so that the setbacks on the then remaining upper floors were there would start to satisfy me a little more. i still am in a situation as long as we're over the 40 foot of necessary and desirable, i am of the opinion, strictly personal, that 4,000 square foot penthouse is neither necessary or desirable and that if you did bring down a floor, that top level could be divided into several units and
level is looking to san francisco to set the standard for all of us. thank you. >> any additional public comment? >> if you do not mind, i will jump on and on this. the director and i attended a little bit of a workshop related to the collection of this data, and who we are in the base of silicon valley where we can start to take data, utilize it, use it to make decisions, create maps about where areas might be deficient, not only for housing, but for senior housing, retail as well. i look forward to anything that brings us closer to that. some folks over at uc berkeley really created a sort of a sense city where you were able to forecast what a city could be like -- sort of create a "sim city." commissioner antonini: my only concern is that this is interpreted in the right way. we have a changing population, as everyplace does, changing demographics ethnically and demographically, and we should not be trying to lock in the status quo of percentages of income levels and housing. we do have to reevaluate as there is a population change in income levels change your housing needs based upon
in the managed index funds, gus, good to have you on the program, thank you for joining us on the program. >>> thank you. >> so we got the jobs numbers out on friday, the unemployment rate at 8.2%, the number of jobs created, another big disappointment. 80 thousand jobs, what did you expect? and what do you think it tells us about the economy right now. >> well, the adp number came out the day before, people were very excited about the number, which was up. in fact when the labor department number came out it was really off a little bit from where people had previously expected it to be, a little bit of disappointment. it didn't surprise us. we expected weakness throughout the summer, we think the economy will start to improve in the latter part of the year, perhaps the latter part of the third quarter and fourth quarter. >> and as the economy has gotten worse, the federal reserve says we will be there if more stimulus is needed. we saw global moves, the bank of england and china, what is your outlook on the global economy? and is it all up to the feds at this point? >> well, i think it n
the farm bill and it already passed the u.s. senate and a scheduled vote wednesday on a repeal of the affordable care act known as obama care following the ruling last week by the supreme court. it is sunday, july 8 and will begin with our focus on u.s. foreign policy and hillary clinton who is in tokyo today for a series of talks on the u.s./nato role in afghanistan or the next decade. will get your calls and comments about u.s. foreign policy generally and the performance of the secretary of state, hillary clinton specifically. our phone lines are open -- you can join the conversation on our twitter page and facebook. or send us an e-mail. there are a couple of articles related to the secretary of state and this one is from cbs news. she beat the former record held by madeleine albright. there is this from "the l.a. times." she was asked about corruption in the country. she said it is a major challenge to meet the standards of accountability and transparency. the exchange came during this unannounced stopover by the secretary of state. even if her words or encouraging, many i
vehicles, uav's. pilotless aircraft used mostly by the u.s. military for surveillance, reconnaissance, and killing, as in yemen recently. he here at home, law enforcement agencies, local police, are eager to utilize drones for civil surveillance. some already do. 146 commercial drones are now accessible for civil law enforcement nationwide. the number is expected to skyrocket. the the u.s. senate armed services committee called for allowing these drones to operate, quote unquote, freely and routinely in u.s. airspace. such authorization has rattled some members of congress. notably republican senator rand paul. he's introduced an act to prohibit the i don't say of drones by u.s. civilian government unless authorized by a warrant. that would put parameters on such usage. >> what i would say is that drones could be used if you have a proper warrant but that means you go through a judge, a judge has to say there's probable cause of a crime, but i don't want dreams crisscrossing our city and country snooping on americans. that's a surveillance state that i'm very concerned about and that'
th or 19th, so let us put in for the 18th. i think that is a good idea. >> both? chairperson hur: both. is mr. hennessy going to appear live? >> not as far as i know. chairperson hur: so there are two witnesses, and they will appear july 18. >> we need to go over the sheriff mirkarimi's testimony to find out if we need rebuttal witnesses. i do not know whether we do. we might. we will look into it as quickly as we can. chairperson hur: everybody hold the 19th. do not release the 19th. i would like to know by july 6 -- is that doable? that is next friday. we can do the 10th, if that is a problem. >> we might be able to identify the witnesses by july 6, certainly. i do not know if they are going to be any part of it. it depends how quickly the court reporter may be able to get us a transcript. chairperson hur: let us to july 10, ok? let us know by july 10 whether you have a rebuttal case you want to present. is that reasonable? >> yes. >> two issues, actually. one is we would like to have some date certain by which we will now -- know whether or not sure if tennessee -- sheriff hen
strategy what about the u.s. and the impact? my conversation with one of the most powerful women in the world. the international monetary fund christine lagarde, talking about america. >>> and a nation of wusses, what current politicians are afraid to say. why nobody is making the tough changes they need to make, "the wall street journal report" begins right now. >> here is a look at what is making news as we head into a new week on wall street, we had another disappointing jobs number to report, the economy add'd just 80,000 jobs in the month of june, well below expectations. the unemployment rate held steady at 8. %. it made the economy the weakest for job growth in two years, adding just 75,000 per month, a third of the jobs created in the first quarter. well, that drove the markets down at the open on friday after hitting their highest level since early may during the holiday shortened week. >> bob i do mond is out after he resuned after the bank admitted to fixing a key interest rate. i can mond is an american, largely credited with expanding barclay's revenue. >>> ford was
through our region. the entire area remains under a thunderstorm watch. thanks for joining us at 6 i am will thomas. let's get right to it. gwen tolbart is in the weather center tracking the storms. >> it has been a very busy afternoon will. the storms started firing up into the early afternoon hours, areas to the northwest and have become fairly widespread as the system pushes through to the south and southeast. let's begin with a look at radar all centered around that frontal system you see there, that system being the trigger for everything happening coming into our warm, humid air mass across the region, causing things to fire up. we have a severe thunderstorm watch for the entire viewing area, in effect until 10. let's go to sentinel radarrings on max one for you here, you can see we have a little bit of an area to the south, just seems to be now like it is really firing up a lot. a little bit of upper level rotation, that definitely is worth watching and then as we take a closer look towards the northeast, we are talking about areas that definitely have hail alert s with them and
as edie geiten can are. she could not get the sad thoughts out of her head. >> my mother used to say to me, smile, why don't you smile? and i would -- you know, give something like that maybe or just -- want is there to smile about? >> at 19, the first of three suicide attempts. >> for reasons that are inexplicable to me even now. got up and started playing with a razor. and -- >> you cut your wrists. both your wrists? >> yeah, uh-huh. >> over the next 40 years, she tried counseling, psychiatric drugs, and electroconvulsive shock therapy, but nothing worked. >> the despair, i think, is what is the most powerful push toward suicide. because it feels like there is no hope. >> but if you could look inside edie's head today, this is what you'd see. two electrodes, the thick not of angel hair pasta -- thickness of angel hair pasta, powered by a battery pack. >> i don't think about it, but i have electrodes in my brain. >> an experimental use of deep brain stimulation. what are we looking cincinnati pioneered by neurologists. the target is called area 25. a junction box for the brain circuits th
sprang into action and often working behind the scenes, he used secretary chase and various members of congress to conduct a radical overhaul of the nation's financial system. the federal government issued some $450 million in fiat money, known as greenbacks for the distinctive green ink on the reverse side and it designated greenbacks and treasury notes as legal tender. now, fiat money means currency backed only by the full faith and credit of the government issuing it. so using greenbacks as legal tender meant that the u.s. had decided to go off the bimetallic standard. but lincoln never intended a permanent departure. greenbacks koucounted as part o the federal debt. and like other government borrowing, applied a future foundation. and we did, in fact, return to a gold standard in 1873 which later gave rise to william jennings brian's famous cross of gold speech. but that's history for another day. so government borrowing practices during the civil war had a far more substantial effect on public finance. and both of the time, and consequently, the tax policy. the revenue effect w
the conclusions of law that she offers us. i think that is our responsibility. chairperson hur: i agree with that. i do not think we need the conclusions of law, and i do not think we need her to tell us how his actions relate to his duties. we have an expert for that. any dissenting views? >> may i speak to the issue? i think the question is not whether it missileman's declaration is cumulative -- -- whether miss lemon's declaration is cumulative. it is about their relationship between a sheriff who has committed an act of violence and the duties of the sheriff. i think those are things for which there is a story. in terms of the ultimate issue, there is a difference in criminal law and in civil law. in civil law, there is explicit evidence that says it is admissible for an expert to offer you their opinion on the ultimate issue. that does not bind you to the expert opinion, but it is not an inappropriate opinion to make. it certainly is admissible under the evidence code. under criminal law, that is different. you cannot give an opinion about the ultimate issue, or the fact of the defendant pic
we handle drug enforcement here in california is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population o

evening and good to have you with us. i'm will thomas. it's been more than a week since that storm uprooted trees, hundreds of them, in fact, destroying countsless countless homes. gwen, good evening. >> good evening, well. we do have a very hot day today and that create add very hot, humid air mass across our region. now we have a front tall system that's moving through. let's show that you radar. that frontal system now well to the north of us intersecting pennsylvania where they are already seeing storms that are starting to kick up. that storm will move its way across our area as we move into sunday. with that front entering that very cold air mass, we could see some strong storms across the area. satellite radar composite showing you not a lot happening for us right now. expect to see some cloudy skies tonight we are, as i said, under the run for that we are under a slight risk of severe weather for tomorrow. we'll have to keep our eyes on the skies in terms of it. ed cold front will slowly move its way through. the cold front will move through by tomorrow afternoon and they w

value to justify the conditional use, especially when it sacrifices the neighbor's wants and needs and desire to preserve and enhance their quality of life. the 1601 larkin project as proposed would really destroy the small scale neighborhood and the quality of life along larkin and clay streets. there should be no question that this would be the case if the project is allowed to move forward as presently proposed. thank you very much. >> commissioners, i'm michael michael skolnick. i don't think i will use three more minutes tonight. i have some great neighbors with me tonight. i mean, these people have put a lot of time and energy and thought into this project and i have lived in the neighborhood since 1997 and, yeah, i have seen it deteriorate, but i think that the day i walked into the planning department and had a meeting with them, the zoning administration, larry babner that i knew i was going to take on this site. you know, gordon eakin will talk about a meeting that we had with neighbors in january of 2000. that was a tense meeting. we said to him, you know, there are ligh

there live. it used to be kind of like "star trek" to be able to do that. you can do that these is a very affordable if you have train yourself on some of the equipment that we have and the resources that we have and be able to do that for the various senior centers that you live and work in and enjoy yourselves in. you're going to be able even to read a book online or be able to just have a game and download a game and play with your friends as well. we are all lucky to live in san francisco, because so many of our technology companies have located their headquarters here in san francisco. [cheers and applause] and because they're located here, we can always ask them for a favor here and there and make sure no one is left out, because that is what we do in government. david chiu and i come from backgrounds where we do not want to leave anybody behind. we want everybody to enjoy the riches of technology. we want them to enjoy the economy in san francisco. that is why we're working so hard to make sure our central marketplace is welcoming of all these technology companies, making sure that
and sin no more. and if you do, you'll be back here to see us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question concerning juveniles. i think juveniles defini

of mental health services with the general population. we need to talk about ways to use other services with mental- health so people are more open to this. we also experience that the committees may ask for a lot of services but a lot of times they don't want their neighbors to see this, so people go across the city to get service, and then -- stephanie mentioned that there are geographic safety barriers that we have with the neighborhoods. people cannot come down because they have to cross a certain territory. this may put them in jeopardy. we look at, what is the intervention of violence? we'll get comprehensive strategies with the city departments, community-based organizations and the communities themselves. one model that we have been working on, is the street violence intervention model. i will not go into a lot of detail. this model, you have heard about. you hear about the price of timidity response networks. there is the northwest timidity response network, and the southeast community response network. the department of public health, the administrative label and in regard to
